Acquisition Accelerates the Intelligence-Powered Future of Sports
Menlo Park, CA — July 14, 2021 — Kitman Labs, the global sport intelligence platform, announced today that it has acquired Presagia Sports from Presagia Corporation. The acquisition of Presagia Sports’ Athlete Electronic Health Record business furthers the Kitman Labs mission to empower sports organizations to consolidate all athlete data and operations into a single platform and unite every department around shared intelligence to improve talent strategy, athlete development, performance, and health.
“Sports medicine is at an exciting inflection point driven by exploding volumes of sports data combined with the demand to eliminate silos and integrate medical insights into performance and coaching decisions” said Stephen Smith, Founder and CEO, Kitman Labs. “We are excited to partner with Presagia Sports clients to create the future of their sports medicine programs by further developing their EMR capabilities and creating a united approach across all departments.”
The acquisition expands Kitman Labs’ presence in the United States with the addition of over 110 NCAA universities, youth sports programs, and sports clinics. Presagia Sports clients include: the Pac-12 and all of their member institutions, Clemson University, Florida State University, and University of Georgia. They join a network of 600 elite teams around the world using Kitman Labs to achieve their on and off the field objectives.
“The innovation needed to allow EMR users to do more, do it faster, and do it in their own unique way is at an all new level” said Rene Beaudoin, CEO of Presagia Corporation. “We are thrilled to have found the right partner for our sports clients in Kitman Labs, who has a powerful vision for the market and offers incredible resources with deep knowledge of sports. This will allow us to strategically focus on our rapidly growing Absence Management business which enables employers to compliantly and efficiently manage the 600+ leave laws in the U.S. and Canada, all while knowing our sports clients are in excellent hands.”
The acquisition also adds to the Kitman Labs data landscape, the industry’s largest data set of health, performance, youth development, coaching, physical, and psychological data. The company’s Performance Intelligence Research Initiative and Data Science teams harness the data to deliver unique insights about injuries, preparation, performance, development, and recruiting, in and across Kitman Labs partners.
“Our unparalleled data set powers accelerated R&D and the delivery of unrivaled analytics to the market,” said Smith. “More data across age groups means better research on the youth to professional lifecycle. The added data from hundreds of organizations also allows us to advance our analytics offerings around injury risk, improving the well-being and career longevity of athletes across the globe.”
